Capstone Turbine Corporation (NASDAQ:CPST) has announced that its Signature Series C200 and C1000, and C65 energy systems have become the first microturbines to be certified to the United Kingdom Energy Networks Association (ENA) G99 grid connection standard.

In a statement, the leader in clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems pointed out that the global momentum towards the adoption of grid interconnection standards for distributed energy resources continues at full speed.

These standards emphasize the ability of distributed energy generators to support the grid during outage events and to protect the grid with proper disconnect responses and quality of power, it added.

Grid operators are mandating compliance with the diverse national and regional standards prior to implementing new generators and certification is a key competitive advantage to ensure relevance in these markets, the company said.

Accelerating the certification process

Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer at Capstone commented: “The success of the G99 certification is a direct result of the partnership between Capstone’s engineering team and one of our U.K. distributors, Pure World Energy.

“Our combined efforts in working with ENA and UK Power Networks enabled us to achieve this certification by leveraging our inverter-based electronics and control systems, on the back of previous certification and software development efforts, such as the German BDEW/VDE standards, Italian CEI standards, and the various UL grid interconnect standards.”

 “Since Capstone’s products are already certified to these standards, this eliminated the need for further testing, accelerating the certification process and saving Capstone time and money,” Jamison added.

Interconnect standards

The company noted that German and Italian grid interconnect standards, and more recently UL1741 SA has paved the way for identifying the requirements that other countries are following.

These trailblazers in grid interconnection standardization are now looking to iterate their own standards, creating an environment of continuous improvement and accelerating the adoption of distributed energy solutions worldwide, it added.

Don Ayers, Product Engineering Director at Capstone said: “The foundation of Capstone’s proprietary inverter technology enables our flexibility in meeting all of the unique regional requirements.”

And Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Capstone added: “Our G99 grid connect certification in the U.K. is a particularly important part of Capstone’s strategy as London continues to expand their emission reduction policies.”
